I really have no idea, but going by the way they don't mesh right, I don't think they are GT weights. I'm thinking by the color they are possibly full size Minneapolis Moline front wheel weights???

You may be right, i was thinking that they didn't mesh right because they're on the wrong side?

I think Daniel could be on to something there. Maybe they are in fact MM weights.

Hey Daniel, didn't MM use those on the steering axle of that Uni-Tractor thing that New Idea later copied.

Is it possible those weights are designed for the inside of the rim with the large centre hole to clear the hub. The captive nuts looks to me like the side we are looking at would be the inside of the wheel.

I truly don't know Brian, it's just the paint that made me think MM.
